Clear Channel has added our song "Anyway" to their music website. Clear Channel owns over 1,000 radio stations across the US, and any Clear Channel radio station program director can choose to play the music that is on the Clear Channel music website. Songs that get a lot of play on the Clear Channel music website have a better chance at getting played on traditional radio.

So help us out! Please go to our
Clear Channel song page and listen to "Anyway" as often as you can, and also tell your friends.

News 7/7/2006 In the Friday, July 7, 2006 issue of The Gainesville Sun, our album, "Distant Garden" made Dave Schlenker's Top 5 Weekly Must List. He said, "Teen singer Sarah Hoffman powers this Gainesville band through a well-produced, solid set of mostly originals. But, the best download is a rockin' chick cover of Cheap Trick's Surrender."
Mr. Schlenker is an entertainment writer for the Sun and his list appeared on the front page of the Weekend section. We thank everyone for his or her support.
